Indian territory will have to wait
another year for organized govern

that statehood with Oklahoma will
finally be agreed on and that the

We have gone through the different departments of our big store and selected all the odd lots and short lengths in each department. It is our aim to close
out every odd lot of merchandise that we have. In order to do this we know we must sell cheao that is what we are doine sellintr cheap. It is a great op-
3; portunity to buy good merchandise much under value. Especially is this true of our Odd lots of men's and boys' clothing. We have a large number of suits,
one to three of a kind, which we have taken out of our regular stock and marked them down to half their real value, and in many instances to less than hall.
In priujqfour suits for this odd lot sale we have taken no account of original cot; we want to sell them, and we know that to do so quick we must not con ider
cost. We will expect every man in this vicinity to visit our store during this sale, as it will be greatly to their interest to do so.
